the back of an encouraging performance against tunisia. the manager, gareth southgate, had vowed that his players were hungry. well, today we found out exactly what he meant as they produced arguably their most performance at a major tournament for 22 years. the sense that something special may be happening. england's world cup was about to hot up. conditions were meant to favour their central american opponents. but after last week's last—gasp win, england would not turn potential into the defining performance that fans had craved for years. the cruising encounter against panama, things immediately turning nasty. but england had developed a threat of their own in set pieces.
8:03 pm
and john stones took the lead. having been denied penalties against tunisia, england now had some luck. escobar punished for bringing down jesse lingard. harry kane giving the panama keeper no chance. how emphatic was that? england were about to run riot. first lingard scored the goal his performance deserved. jesse lingard. this is what it meant to the manager and the millions watching back home. before stones finished off yet another clever set piece move. by now, panama had lost the plot, giving kane another penalty. england five, panama zero. never before had england scored five in a world cup match, and we haven't even reached half—time.
8:04 pm
the records will show england's first world cup hat trick for 32 years, the captain russia 2018 top scorer on five. unsurprisingly england's intensity dropped off, and panama took advantage. panama had the consolation of their first world cup goal, but this had been england's day, one of their best days, 6—1 theirfinal score, the most emphatic world cup victory sending them through to the next game with a game to spare. i'm sure everyone at home is enjoyed it. the captain now meanwhile the only third captain to score a world cup hat trick. -- third —— third englishman. we have been working on the way we want to play, and it's all come together. brilliant result, obviously
8:05 pm
fantastic to be through it and to do it in this way is brilliant. for years, england's site have struggled to impose themselves at world cup. how times have changed. to put what happened into some kind of context, after two matches, england were out. the fan should not get too carried away or excited. it is only a start, and only a poor panama site that they demolished today, of course. there will be harder challenges in the future, especially belgium on thursday. the outcome of that match will determine who gareth southgate‘s side meet in the first knockout stages. people would have taken notice of that performance today, and england right now should not fear anyone. we can speak to damion potter, the uk ambassador to panama, who hosted a world cup party for the panamanian government. you are a brave you are a brave man. you are a brave man. is that how you arejust you are a brave man. is that how you are just the occasion? it is howl

panama scored, he would jump in the summing pool. i had promised that if england one, i would join him. he left at half—time, but his team stayed. so we jumped left at half—time, but his team stayed. so wejumped in left at half—time, but his team stayed. so we jumped in the left at half—time, but his team stayed. so wejumped in the summing pool at the end. how muted digital celebrations have to be? clearly, i might have cleared more loudly on ritual territory, but i still cheered as an english man and an avid football fan, i was delighted to be able to cheer on the three lions as they were able to support form so well on the world cup. the panamanians form so well on the world cup. the pa namanians delighted to form so well on the world cup. the panamanians delighted to do so. we have just watched you jump in the pool have just watched you jump in the pool. a very co—ordinated job it was, too. your position is now safe, they will not ask you to leave the country? on the contrary they are excited by things like that video. rahman as counted down from 61. it is great for our relationship. it

8:09 pm
obviously an outsider. how likely are they, too want to support england into the next ages, do you think? your guests today?” obviously will support them in all their games, except in this one. i hope they do well against tunisia. the pa namanians were hope they do well against tunisia. the panamanians were supporting the footie reasons, because they watch the premier league each week, and there have been beaten by england, so there have been beaten by england, so if we go on and do well, they can prove to other people that they can hold it with the best of them. let's remember, that player has scored. they are celebrating that. more goals than messi. immensely diplomatic, that is why you have got thejob. thank diplomatic, that is why you have got the job. thank you so diplomatic, that is why you have got thejob. thank you so much diplomatic, that is why you have got the job. thank you so much for talking to us. it was great fun. and we'll find out how this story, and many others, are covered in tomorrow's front pages at 10.30pm and 11.30pm this evening in the papers. 0ur guestsjoining me tonight are charlie wells from the economist and joel taylor, deputy newws editor at the metro. the government has
8:10 pm
announced new measures to tackle obesity in england. ministers want to ban shops displaying unhealthy snacks at checkouts, impose tighter restrictions on television adverts, and ban the sale of energy drinks to children. the government said the cost of obesity was ‘too great to ignore' but labour accused the prime minister of a ‘dossier of failure' on children's health. here's our health editor hugh pym. looking after the health of future generations. that's the aim of the government's plan. this class is run by us mums, a healthy lifestyle initiative developed by hull city council. bend those knees up a little bit more. let's go a little bit quicker. the view here is any help on choosing the right foods is welcome. i think unhealthy food is just way too cheap, and it's just easier for everybody to just get the unhealthy food when you're out. just go in somewhere and pick up something, like a chocolate, or a packet of crisps on the go. the government plan for england includes restrictions on unhealthy food promotions in supermarkets, including sweets at the tills, restrictions on tvjunk food advertising on all programmes up
8:11 pm
to the 9pm watershed and calorie information to be published in restaurants. these measures were all considered by david cameron in 2016, but then put on hold when theresa may became prime minister. all these options were available two years ago, you didn't take them. was it a wasted opportunity? you can always do more, but i think what we did two years ago was we said we wanted to reduce the sugar content in food consumed by children by 5% in the first year. and if we didn't deliver on that, we would go further. well, he industry did not deliver on that so today we're going further. reading the detail today, some health campaigners said they still had reservations. we welcome the plan. it's definitely a step in the right direction. however, many of the actions are subject to consultation so we don't know if they're actually going to take place. furthermore, we think there needs
8:12 pm
to be other areas that need to be looked at and considered for the future. the food and drink federation said there'd be deep disquiet in the industry and there will be intense scrutiny of how the measures might work. the government wants every restaurant and cafe to set out the calorie content of each dish on its menu. that's a big ask, especially for smaller outlets. a lot of detail will have to be worked out on how it is going to be implemented after the consultation process. scotland's first minister, nicola sturgeon, who recently met celebrity chef jamie oliver, has made her own pledge to halve child obesity. a plan will be published soon. hugh pym, bbc news. provisional results from the turkish parliamentary election suggest the governing ak party has lost its overall majority. with most of the votes counted, turkish broadcasters put the ak party on just under 44%. in the presidential poll, it's not clear if president recep tayyip erdogan will be re—elected without the need for a second round of voting. selin giritjoins us now from istanbul. we still do not know what the final
8:13 pm
results will be in this most contested election that turkey has seen contested election that turkey has seenin contested election that turkey has seen in recent years. there is a lot at stake. the new president would have sweeping powers if he secures more than 50% of the votes, tonight, then there would not be a run—off within two weeks. but if neither of the candidates secure 50% of the votes, then there will be a run—off. president hacker is leading the polls. 0ne agency gives the figures as such. president oh dodoo.
8:14 pm
—— erdogan. that is a figure contested by independent monitors. it could be a long night. they are a professional and political science joins me now. if the figures are as that news agency reports, then—president erdogan will become this president with extraordinary powers. what kind of powers will he have? he will have extraordinary powers, but i think, another urgent issue that i would like to point out, here, whether president erdogan will and now make a acceptance speech at the moment. rahman a victory speech chris mac we expect that to happen soon. i think it would be a great mistake... what is the hurry? the whole point of the elections is to find out what people want. what is the will of the
8:15 pm
turkish electorate? president erdogan is in power, why not wait until the official results are announced. it is so that everyone can believe that this is the will, the actual result of the election. the main challenger says do not lead the polling stations. he says that state is manipulative me results. do you think on the same lines?m state is manipulative me results. do you think on the same lines? it is just a news agency, and controlled by the government. we have seen this also in the last referendum, that in also in the last referendum, that in a hurry, the president and the ruling akp party have announced the results before the official results, even though opposition have very serious reservations and complaint about an election process. therefore, the election results,
8:16 pm
have weak legitimacy to this day. how can society have serious doubts about the gravity of the referendum result. if we are really interested in truth and the legitimacy of the election results, there are very serious fraud allegations in many parts of the country, in the main opposition party, in the main... the main —— the main opposition party has said... if they have have really won, what is the hurry? it has been said that president erdogan will be securing his presidency, but his party will have lost its parliamentary majority, what you make of that? that is something we already know, even before we know the official results. we have new actors, right now, their charismatic leaders, there is a new party with a
8:17 pm
charismatic leader, there is a new charismatic leader, there is a new charismatic politician who is leading the polls ahead of his own party, and he is really mobilising his own base and creating excitement and talking about change with a positive agenda and bringing new ideas. the opposition has really. so, with a strong legitimacy, they would have a lot of popularity, which means that turkish politics will not be the same. it'll be different. we want to be a cape arty and the president erdogan, won't be able to dominate turkish politics as they used to. the hk party. we saw a lot of push and pull between the opposition and the government. and the parliament controlled by the opposition if this would be the result. anti-semite forjoining us. if the figures —— thank you very much forjoining us. what will the at stake in turkey? it
8:18 pm
is not still clear. turkish voters have still yet to wait for the final results. will the final result enhanced president erdogan's power, as the news agency suggests, or will they give a different direction with they give a different direction with the opposition in power? a british couple, gayle and charlie anderson, have been found dead in their home in mount pleasant, jamaica. it's believed mr anderson was a builder who had built his own home injamaica and the couple had recently retired there. police are treating the deaths as homicide. 0ur correspondent nick davis joins us now from jamaica's capital, kingston. the investigation is in the early stages. the bodies were found on
8:19 pm
friday by neighbours of theirs in the area of hope bay. they lived in mount pleasant. 0ne the area of hope bay. they lived in mount pleasant. one of the quietest, and one of the safest parishes in jamaica, a much more lower murder rate than seen in other parts of the island, but it has come as a shock to people, not only within their local community, but also in manchester, as well. they retired back to jamaica, they were expecting to start small businesses here, and live out the rest of their years quietly. it is a massively popular place for british people to visit, and honestly, families like this decided they wanted to stay. in this case, charlie, his family originally came from jamaica, and he decided,
8:20 pm
they had been coming back to jamaica for many years, but it is not what people expect. in the past, many people expect. in the past, many people have spoken about returning westerners being targeted. so far this year, five people who have retired back to jamaica have been murdered, but you have got to put that in context. so far this year in jamaica over 600 people have been killed. 0ne jamaica over 600 people have been killed. one that is one murdered too many, and the police are investigating, and they say these people have been targeted, but they say there is another ongoing investigation that people had already started and they are looking at that as a possible... nick, thank you very much. the headlines on bbc news: england fans celebrate after the lions make it through to the knock out stages of the world cup in russia thanks to a record—breaking win over panama. new measures aimed at halving the number of obese children in england by 2030 have been announced by the government.
8:21 pm
polls have closed in the turkish presidential election and local media is reporting president erdogan is in the lead after most of the votes have been counted. sport now and a full round up, from the bbc sport centre. england produced their biggest victory at a world cup to book their place in the last 16, harry kane's hat trick helping them to a 6—1win over panama. gareth southgate's side qualifying for the knock out stage with one game to spare. joe lynskey reports. every world cup match reveals more about this england team. from tunisian resilience, now they faced panama's passion. for them, just being here is the climax of a journey. england are just getting started. the headerfrom john stones has gone in. inside eight minutes,
8:22 pm
john stones' route to goal had beaten off the tension. soon after, a foul onjesse lingard brought the chance for more. a penalty and one man to trust with it. how emphatic was that? harry kane's conversion set the foundations for flamboyance. lingard spent the first half getting roughed up. it was time for a silky touch. jesse lingard fires in a beautiful third for england. if that third strike was special, england's fourth was beauty in a different style, a set piece from the training ground, stones back to finish it, a second goal to give the centre—half more world cup strikes than wayne rooney. panama's naivety was exposed, and just like tunisia, they wrestled kane to the floor. the spurs striker needs every chance for the golden boot and after that second penalty, he went out in front in the charts with fortune and a flick on. a hat—trick completed.
8:23 pm
6—0 in the heat, england could look forward but they lost track at the back to let panama in for their first world cup goal. for the fans in the stadium and 4 million back home, a strike of deeper significance. for england, it barely changed the mood, and for kane, his three goals mean a football to take home. for the fans on the journey and the coach who set the tone, this is the day they start to believe. just before half—time comedy game was done today, so it was a very strange feeling watching the second half, just trying to encourage the players to keep professional only way that they played and be a top tea m way that they played and be a top team by being ruthless. i was pleased the captain got a hat—trick, and it meant he got the hump left when i brought him. he loves to
8:24 pm
score the goals. the most important thing is to win games, and my goal was to help the team win, and that is the perfect situation. a long way to go, a lot of good players behind me, so funny, hopefully i can continue it and take it into thursday's game. that is when they face belgium to decide who will top the group. all eyes on group h to see who will finish first and second. it is a team from here whom england will play in the last 16, japan currently top after a 2—2 draw with senegal, who are second. the two teams drew, sadio mane with their first after a mistake by the japan goalkeeper kawashima. japan pulled level only for senegal to retake the lead, but substitute keizuke honda salvaged a valuable point with a goal late on in the second half. in the other game in group h, poland could be heading home. they trail colombia 1—0.
8:25 pm
yerry mina with the only goal of the game so far. just over half an hour to play in that one. colombia leading 1—0. england won the fifth and final one day international against australia at old trafford to take the series five nil and with it a first series whitewash. england won the fifth and final one day international against australia at old trafford to take the series five nil and with it a first series whitewash. it took a remarkable 110 not out from jos buttler to do it, though. he'd steered england from 27 for four to their victory target of 206. it's the first time england have achieved a series whitewash against australia in any form of cricket. lewis hamilton has returned to the top of formula 0ne's drivers' championship after winning the french grand prix. with title rival sebastian vettel crashing at the first corner there was no one to challenge the briton, who went on to win for the third time this season. he now leads the german by fourteen points. marin cilic has beaten novac djokovic to win his second title at the queen's club. he fought back from a set down
8:26 pm
against the former world number one to win the longest final in the tournament's history. djokovic, who had been aiming to win his first title in a year, had a match point in the second set but couldn't convert it and was easily beaten in the third. that's all the sport for now. the german chancellor, angela merkel, says an eu mini—summit on migration has agreed that countries on the front line of migration routes cannot be left alone to carry the burden. she said an existing deal to pay turkey to stop migrants entering europe could serve as a model for other transit countries. italy and malta have recently banned charity rescue boats from their ports, leaving vessels loaded with migrants stranded in international waters. prince william has arrived injordan at the start of a middle eastern tour that will see him become the first british royal to pay official visits to both israel
8:27 pm
and palestinian territories. the duke of cambridge's royal air force plane touched down at amman's marka military airport, where he was given a red—carpet welcome by crown prince hussein bin abdullah. later today, he will attend a birthday party in honour of his grandmother, the queen, at the residence of the british ambassador in amman. prince william will spend two days injordan before leaving for israel. president trump has called for illegal immigrants to be deported immediately from the united states "with no judges or court cases". the president shared this post on social media. he said: "we cannot allow all of these people to invade our country. when somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no judges or court cases, bring them back from where they came. our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and law and order. most children come without parents." he went on: "0ur immigration policy is laughed at all over the world and is very unfair to all those people who have gone through the system legally,
8:28 pm
and are waiting on line for years! immigration must be based on merit — we need people who will help to make america great again!" chris buckler sent this update from washington. it has to be said that what donald trump is suggesting here will shock many of his political opponents, this idea that there should be no judicial process and that people should simply be deported whenever they illegally try to enter america. of course, as things stand at the moment, there is this process of asylum where they can try to convince an asylum officer and then go before an immigration judge. it is not a new system, it has been in place for decades. but donald trump believes that the whole system has become unwieldy. and he has taken a very hard line on immigration itself, pushing, of course, initially, that policy of separating children from their parents as they try to cross the border, which some in the white house had suggested was in order to try and ensure that they would have a deterrent against the number of people trying to arrive
8:29 pm
into the country. however, what we have seen in the last week is donald trump has had to back down on that issue of family separations. and as a result, he is now having something of a backlash against his decision to back down against his better instincts. and this is a pretty stark tweet, when you read it. he talks about not allowing all of these people to, in his words, "invade our country." he says, "when somebody comes in, we must immediately, with nojudges or court cases, bring them back from where they came." of course, currently, there is still a lot of confusion about what is happening to those families who have been separated. we believe around 2000 children still haven't been reunited with their parents, and in fact, there are suggestions that won't happen until either they are deported or they are released from detention. but all of this, certainly the hardening of this rhetoric, gives you a clear indication that
8:30 pm
donald trump is intending to talk about immigration going into the midterm elections here, which are held in november. and those are crucial congress elections which will be extremely divisive. women in saudi arabia have been permitted to drive a car for the first time today. the move is part of a programme of modernisation under crown prince mohamed bin salman. but there's been criticism that many leading women's rights activists who challenged the ban are still in prison. hello, if you have got the weekend off, you're onto a winner. it will stay dry, and strong sunshine. very one, as well. almost uk wide. 0ut there tonight, things turn a little bit fresh after a sunny day. clear skies that the vast majority. bit of low cloud is hitting the
